5 stars Samla Mammas Manna play a unique style of music. It's bursting with energy, invention and playfulness. Those who like their music to be SERIOUS - well, stay away. You'll hate this. For those of us who can giggle as we listen, this is an album you won't want to miss out on. Jazzy textures and touches of folk mingling with quirky melodies and bursts of care-free avant-garde madness, not to mention those idiosyncratic vocals that sound like a bunch of drunken gnomes burst into the studio. Yes, it's silly at times, but that silliness is underpinned by superb musicianship and a real sense of purpose. It's obvious that SMM knew exactly what they were up to when they recorded this album, and after a few listens you will too. I can't really do a breakdown of the songs in this instance, as it's such a cohesive album. Just take mine, and several others' word for it and check out this strange, fun, and hugely rewarding music.

Highlights: "Dundrets fröjder", "Syster system", "Minareten".
